If you must use a "desktop friendly environment" as your recovery environment you should turn off such features like auto-mounting (the root problem with that story with auto-fsck on dirty volumes following through and really screwing it up).

That should stop any auto-fsck from occurring. You will have to manually mount the drive if that is what you want to do.

Me personally I use Plop Linux.

Good point - I found that program long ago and forgot about it. A good suggestion for people who don't have the means to deactivate the MBR on the drive itself.

Default PenDriveLinux

Download an light bootable OS like Xubuntu and use PenDriveLinux to make it bootable. If that doesn't work use a CF card, make it usb, bootable and then convert it to IDE (or sata)
